The King County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that a man was shot and killed in Puget Sound Park in the 12800 block of 1st Ave South (map below) in Burien Tuesday night, Feb. 12 at around 9:30 p.m.

When police arrived, they located a 22 year old victim that had been shot. Lifesaving efforts by the Deputies on-scene, as well as King County Medics, were not successful and the victim died at the scene (NOTE: Originally, the Sheriff’s Office said the victim was in his 30s, but this was corrected Wed. morning).

The suspect, a 23-year old male, fled the scene in a vehicle.

A short time later, Deputies located the suspect on foot a few blocks from the scene. He was arrested without incident. A firearm was found nearby.

The motive for the shooting is not known at this time, and it appears the victim and suspect did not know each other.

The Medical Examiner’s office will release the identity of the deceased male.

As we learn more information, we’ll update this post…
